Lesher House - Lace

Posted by
karla (Omaha, United States) on 28 July 2020 in Lifestyle & Culture.

Stuhr Railroad Town: In the Lesher house, lace curtains are at the windows and a crocheted table covering is featured on a table in front of the window. Crocheting and knitting were important practical skills learned while still young. These items could easily be in the category Art & Design.

Such delicateness captured in the window sheer and tablecloth! Very eye-catching design.

@Steven: Thanks, Steve! The mood at this window was very quiet and contemplative. Not even flowers yet--only roses were blooming outside at the time.

This is lovely. The lace table cloth compliments the curtains. The vase creates a beautiful reflection. A lovely still life.

@Elaine Hancock: Thanks, Elaine! I love seeing these things in other houses because I don't have the style that lace would compliment.

Charming image. The subtle colors are nice. This looks timeless.

@B. Thomas: Thanks. It was quite the style to have crocheted items -- tablecloths and doilies -- decorating a home, maybe through the 1940s, depending on the homemaker.

@Michael Rawluk: Used to be popular items long ago, often big enough for a full-sized dining table. Thanks for your visit and comment!
